Jennifer Johnston, M.D. - Quinpool Wellness Centre

As a Nova Scotia Bioidentical Hormones Clinic, Quinpool Wellness Centre provides traditional pharmaceutical services, and it is also one of the few pharmacies in Halifax that provide a full range of compounding services. Our physician, Dr. Jennifer Johnston is a practicing family doctor from the Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia. She completed her medical training at Dalhousie University and later became board certified in Lifestyle Medicine by the ACLM. By using the latest research and techniques, she aims to harness the body’s natural ability to heal. She is dedicated to giving patients the tools and treatments needed to restore and repair the body for optimal health and vitality. The advantage of bio-identical hormones is that they have the same molecular structure as the body’s natural hormones. This enables them to attach easily to the hormone receptors in the body to form a perfect fit, and the body can recognize them, as if they were the body’s natural hormones. Unlike traditional hormone replacement therapy, which prescribes a standard dose for all women, bio-identical hormones are custom formulated for each individual patient. Quinpool Wellness Centre is one of a select few pharmacies providing compounding services including Bioidentical Hormones to customers all over Nova Scotia.

Patient Testimonial

“I have always been pro-active with regard to the management of my health. Long disabled with multiple chemical sensitivities as well as being afflicted with (bi-polar) disorder has made it tremendously more complicated. A year ago, on the advice of my best friend, I walked into the calm of The Medicine Shoppe and was greeted by Anastasia. Immediately I was struck by this woman’s intent focus and generosity of spirit. It was clear to me then that we would be able to work together to meet my needs and achieve my goals. Many days I come in with rush orders and last minute changes. When one thing didn’t work we tried another till we got it right. Sometimes a doctor would have to be consulted. And I am also aware that there were days that must have stretched out long into the night behind the counter working on some challenge or another while family life went on without her. Additionally and unexpectedly we have also forged a wonderful relationship of which I am reminded every time I walk into the calm of The Medicine Shoppe to be greeted by Anastasia and her remarkable assistant Sharon.” – JT.
